About this Item: La Nuova Italia,, Firenze, 1977. "Il progresso della scienza consiste nell’osservare queste connessioni e nel mostrare con paziente indagine che gli eventi di questo mondo in perpetuo mutamento non sono che esemplificazioni di alcune connessioni o relazioni generali che vengono chiamate leggi. Vedere il generale nel particolare e il permanente nel transitorio è la meta a cui tende il pensiero scientifico. All’occhio della scienza la caduta di una mela, il moto di un pianeta intorno al sole e l’adesione dell’atmosfera alla terra, appaiono tutte come esemplificazioni della legge di gravitazione. Questa possibilità di scomporre le circostanze più complesse, più evanescenti in varie esemplificazioni di leggi permanenti è l’idea dominante del pensiero moderno. Ora pensiamo quali siano le leggi che ci occorrono per realizzare in modo completo questo ideale scientifico. ." Dall'indice: Presentazione di Paolo Parrini. Prefazione. Spiegazione preliminare delle idee e delle notazioni. La teoria dei tipi logici. I simboli incompleti. Proposizioni atomiche e proposizioni molecolari. Le funzioni elementari di individui. Le proposizioni generali di ambito limitato. Le funzioni come variabile. Le funzioni diverse dalle matrici. Le classi. L'induzione matematica. In Appendice: Funzioni di verità e funzioni d'altro genere. Esemplare perfetto allo stato di nuovo, in prima edizione. Brossura editoriale, sopracoperta trasparente editoriale, pp. LVII, 254, in 8°.

About this Item: New York: Basic Books, 1962., 1962. First Edition in English, American issue, of 'Über formal unentscheidbare Sätze der Principia Mathematica und verwandter Systeme' (Monatshefte fur Mathematik und Physik, xxxviii (1931), pp. 173-98). viii, 72 pp. Original cloth-backed boards. Lower corner of rear board slightly bumped and cracked, paper clip attached to p. 33/34. Else Very Good, without dust jacket. "Gödel is best known for his proof of 'Gödel's Incompleteness Theorems'. In 1931 he published these results in Über formal unentscheidbare Sätze der Principia Mathematica und verwandter Systeme. He proved fundamental results about axiomatic systems, showing in any axiomatic mathematical system there are propositions that cannot be proved or disproved within the axioms of the system. In particular the consistency of the axioms cannot be proved. This ended a hundred years of attempts to establish axioms which would put the whole of mathematics on an axiomatic basis. One major attempt had been by Bertrand Russell with Principia Mathematica (1910-13). Another was Hilbert's formalism which was dealt a severe blow by Gödel's results. The theorem did not destroy the fundamental idea of formalism, but it did demonstrate that any system would have to be more comprehensive than that envisaged by Hilbert. Gödel's results were a landmark in 20th-century mathematics, showing that mathematics is not a finished object, as had been believed. It also implies that a computer can never be programmed to answer all mathematical questions" (MacTutor History of Mathematics Web site). Seller Inventory # 14960

About this Item: Harvard University Press, (Cambridge, MA), 1972. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. First Edition. Each volume 8-1/2 by 11-1/4 inches. The Introduction (published in 1971, 380 pages, ISBN 0674461754), serves as both a guide to the Principia, and as a 'biography of the book itself, providing an analytic history of how Newton came to write the book, the printing of the several editions, the critical reception given to each edition, and -- above all -- how Newton continually corrected, revised, and enlarged the text over four decades' -- from the front flap. The 2-volume Principia (Volume I: 547 pages, and Volume II: paginated 548-916; ISBN 0674664752) is a facsimile of Newton's third edition with variant readings of the other texts. First edition (first printing). A fine 3-volume set in nearly fine dust jackets. A large, heavy set. Acquired from the Harvard office library of the paleontologist and leading advocate for evolution, Stephen Jay Gould. With a tipped in bookplate indicating the provenance. *** Intellectually, Gould understood the true nature of these bookplates, but the book collector in him appreciated them. In his essay 'A Seahorse for All Races' Gould writes about one of his prized possessions, a book from Charles Dickens' library: 'Dickens made no annotations, but a bookplate on the cover, presumably inserted as a come-on for a sale after Dickens' death in 1870, does prove that [he] kept and shelved the book.' *** We offer our Gould bookplates, printed letterpress in two colors, in the same spirit.

Vol 1: [iii]-xxx, [1 - index capitum], [1-blank], [1]-431 pp ; Vol 2: [6], [1]-320 pages; Vol 3: [12], [ix]-xxxvi, [1]-344 pages. Vol 4: [4], [iii]-vi, [1]-202 pages. Complete. Short closed tear at the base of page 202, volume 4. Modern tan calf with spine in 6 compartments, raised bands with red and black labels and gilt decorations, simple gold borders on front and rear panels, and edge decorations. Presents very nicely on the shelf. Text in Latin. Full calf. The first Glasgow re-issue of the 1739 Jesuits' edition, edited by John Martin Frederick Wright. The first Jesuits' edition was published in Geneva in 1739-1742 and the second in 1760. These so-called Jesuits' editions (so-called because the editors were really Minims) are valued because of their copious commentary, and also because they contain additional works by Bernoully, Maclarin, and Euler which represent all that was done on the theory of tides between the publication of Newton's Principia and the investigations of Laplace.

Vol I: (xlvi), 674pp, [1]; Vol II: (xxxi), 742pp, [1]; Vol III: (viii), 491pp. Publisher’s original blue cloth with gilt titles to the spine. An excellent near fine set. The binding of each volume square and firm, with minor rubbing and light bumping at the extremities and slight fading or colour variation to the upper board of volume III. The contents are entirely complete, clean throughout and without previous owner’s inscriptions or stamps. An exceptionally nice example of a set usually encountered in less than attractive (often ex-library) condition. The first revised edition of this landmark work. The revisions were done by Russell, although Whitehead was given the opportunity to advise. In addition to the correction of minor errors throughout the original text, changes to the new edition included the inclusion of a new Introduction and three new appendices. (The appendices discuss the theory of quantification, mathematical induction and the axiom of reducibility, and the principle of extensionality respectively. (Irvine, Andrew David: "Principia Mathematica", The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Winter 2016). The three volumes of the first edition were published in 1910, 1912 and 1913.

About this Item: [Cornelius Crownfield], Cambridge, 1713. The second edition, expanded and corrected, and the first to include the General Scholium in which Newton gives a general resumé of the work. One of about 750 copies printed, of which 250 were sent to Holland and France. Engraved vignette on title, one folding engraved plate, and numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text. 14 leaves, 484, [8] pp. 1 vols. 4to. The Second Principia. The critical second edition of what is incontestably the single most important scientific work ever published, one which laid the foundations for modern physics. Published in Newton's lifetime by his friend and collaborater, Roger Cotes (1682-1716), this edition contains for the first time Cotes' Preface which lays out Newton's method, a 7 pp. Index, and most importantly, Newton's own celebrated conclusion entitled SCHOLIUM GENERALE (pp. 481-484), written in response to the objections of Berkeley and Leibniz, in which the author expresses the religious conceptions underlying and supporting his empirical-mathematical construct."Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The PRINCIPIA provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, within a single physical theory. With him the separation of natural and supernatural, of sublunar and superlunar worlds disappeared. The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws" (PMM).
